Pure vibes from the Orph Gang camp. Tinyman takes the lead on this one flowing over a beat reminiscent of the laid back but feel good head bopping vibes of 90′s HipHop. Lots of lyrics in here to make you smile and think at the same time that makes me enjoy the track even more.
This collective really continues to impress with the content that they are delivering get to know!
A bit of fun and quality for Friday. My favourite vocalist in the world Vula Malinga picks up the mic with the awesome Brendon Reilly as they take on the Motown Classic “Your all I need”. The full band amplify the two vocalists brilliance (HORNS HORNS HORNS BABY!!!). And then its nice to hear them having fun with each other and the crowd.
This was filmed at one of South London’s finest venues The Hideaway that is celebrating its 5th birthday this year checkout more about them here.
Fresh from touring the country with George The Poet, Barney Artist drops a brand new track that is free to download. Spiting over a ridiculous beat from Jake Milliner this track is a straight vibe ting. Soulful HipHop whats not to love BIG TUNE!
Not sure what to describe this sound as but I know I like it… a lot. Production and songwriting duo Boys Playing Music aka BPM team up with longtime Music is Remedy favourite Lizzie Nightingale to bring us the title track from their forthcoming EP “Home”. Reminiscent of the sounds of Jessie Ware this is a slice of elctro alt soul at its best. Quality sounds. Look forward to hearing the full EP.
If you like this its a free download so click the link in the track.
I’m a sucker for a piano and voice duet and Rhea Dean does not disappoint with this acoustic performance of her track Sugar Rush. I love the clarity that can be found in her voice throughout just angelic. The piano compliments wonderfully. Lovely performance lovely song quality.
Fast becoming one of my favourite poets to hear on stage Maria Ferguson recently was a feature artist at the fantastic monthly poetry Night Burn After Reading Presents at The Seven Dials Club in Covent Garden. They captured two of her pieces on the night this one is my favourite. Love her combination of calmness and power that ensures the listener feels the emotion in every word.
You can see Maria’s performance and more quality performances at the BAR Poetry youtube page here.
5 minutes 50 seconds of sheer awesomeness. Been shouting about J Warner and his boundary pushing RnB for a while but “Chill Chase” is heads and shoulders above everything he has down to date. The emotion is felt throughout the track with every lyric delivered with the chord sequence, marauding bass synth and sinister guitar lead running over it adding to the build up of angst and pain. Wretch 32 also delivers an almost show stealing performance, I can’t say I have ever herd him that good!
This lady continues to grow on me. Last week Oliva Louise teamed up with SBTV to release her new video for the cool slick and mellow track “Skin Deep”. Its floaty guitar riff sets it up nicely for Olivia’s laid back voice and vocal style to take the lead and be the full focus of the tune. Video is very well shot on the streets of Paris with a good ending (well not for the guy anyway).
The guys have another amazing line up of live music and poetry at this month’s Outspoken. Features from Music is Remedy favourites Adam Kammerling and Chimene Suleyman are worth the entry fee alone. As usual the Anthony Anaxagorou, The Ruby Kid and Karim Kamar will all be on hand to oversee proceedings. A great night in store!
